Reviews

Hogue, for all his deceptions, was genuinely an elite runner . . . and Samuels is an elite narrative journalist, a master at teasing out the social and moral implications of the smallest small talk, of the way people turn their heads or slide into non sequitur as they try to explain themselves. --Keith Gessen, The New York Times Book Review

[T]erse, passionate, and complicated. --James Hannaham, The Village Voice

Haunting . . . Samuels succeeds in showing a man who's not really sure if he even exists. --Richard Rayner, Los Angeles Times
